It's all well and good to point to style guides (MMOS, Chicago, AP,
etc.) but I've not ever encountered a marketing department that adhered
to any sort of style guide. We technical writers can prod them in that
direction or pitch a hissy fit when they do something particularly
egregious but it seldom does any good. We just have to choke back the
bile and accept that they're beyond our control.
